Tell us a bit about the DarkRP community/ies you were/are staff on.
As for me,
>Former Head of Staff of a decently big community, 2 servers with a constant ~50 players on.
>Quit during a mass resignation with another 10 staff members, due to insane corruption among some other Heads of Staff and the main owner being a dipshit.
>After our resignation, most of us were treated like shit, and although we did nothing other than simply quit, we were community banned, and DDoSed in multiple occasions.
Try to guess the name of the community and tell your own stories and experiences.
No idea who you may be, but take my word on this, enjoy yourself while you are still a low rank, because if you get to HoS you're going to be repulsed by the amount of corruption.
My friend (resigned with us) was being DDosed for a good 10 mins a day for about a week, and our IPs were floating around in the forums for a good amount if time... The owners themselves used to DDos a former staff members server. Its full of shit
>Play Dark RP with friend
>I'm an arms dealer and he's a drug dealer
>Open a gun shop
>use it as a front to sell drugs
>cops are on to us
>decide to stop selling cheap guns to mafia
>cops are happy
>3/4 of the cops are corrupt and watch our backs
>help us destroy the mafia's money printers
>we own all the money printers (only a limited amount can exist at once)
>set up crazy safe no one can go into
>wasn't too long after that we were deep in the mayor's pockets
>establish a drug trafficking empire that lasted weeks after we had logged off
It's fun when you have hours to sink in
>With non cancerous people if possible
In an RP server/game? Are you joking?
RP is where people let out their inner cancer.
RP exists so people can behave beyond awful without being publicly executed.
It's not really about the game, it's about the community and the people. Corruption probably isn't the best word to use. Just imagine a team if 8 heads of staff, 4 decent ones (the ones who ended up quitting) and another 4 immature kids that were asslicking the co owners whenever they had the chance. It ruins the entire experience.
>used to play on some random server semi-regularly about two years ago
>often I tried to run gun shops but kiddies would come in with their fuckbuddies and light the place up
>get sick of it and decide to make up an occupation that the server lacks: bartender
>I play as a civillian and buy a building with a wooden counter that nobody ever uses
>I decorate the place a little and start selling beer to people that come in
>I'm the only player in the server who ever does this (at least when I played)
>The plan works great and my bar becomes a big hit with the other players
>Plenty of shenanigans go down in the bar due to so many people hanging out in there. Made for some good laughs
>Place gets raided by cops several times because of criminals hanging out but I just stand behind the counter and watch the fireworks from the sidelines
>Even made two great steam friends from doing this
>Never get robbed because I have no guns
>Nobody thinks to look in the back room behind the counter either
>Have several money printers in there that keep the dosh rolling regardless of sales
Shit was cash
>bloo bloo bloo i didn't get my way
Having to deal with annoying Heads of staff, power hungry co owners, and then one of the oldest HoS getting banned for no valid reason (basicaly the owner didn't like him), is what made us quit. Not us "not having it our way"
If you weren't nitpicky little niggers you would have just put up with the leader's bullshit.
That's what good followers do.
If you don't like it, follow someone else, or lead.
He owns the server, he is your god. RP enough for you?
About a year ago in a darkRp server
>Some hobos were running a school for lolz
>Bunch of people would just go inside and pretend to be students
>Realize this is a good opportunity
>Change Rpname to edgy white kid
>Run inside, kill about 7 players there, drop gun into pocket and run away
>20 seconds later community manager brings me
>I tell him to look at my name and that I was just RPing.
>Finds it funny, jails me for 5 mins and flies away
And that's how to MassRDM and get away with it

>doesn't hit a single shot
>all the streets are huge because the world is tiny, low-poly, boxy steam engine bullshit so she's shooting at me for a good minute, even as I take turns because there's no move speed penalty for shooting in steam
>literally 2 solid minutes of chase before I wind up in a dead end
>for some reason she's not there when I turn around
>millisecond later I get a long-winded OOC rant asking me if I got shot and telling me I have to RP as wounded if I got shot and couldn't have gotten away
>what the fuck am I reading
>I peek out the dead end, she's standing in the middle of the street a block away
>scurry down another alley, send her a response: "nope, didnt hit shit, lrn2shoot"
>doesn't hit a single shot
It's because they have the stormtrooper/shoot to miss rule on these RPs, the idea is you miss the target and the target through some formula figure out if you got hit or not
>literally just walking around aimlessly

Even though there's so much fucking cancer, I still like to play it.
Are there any good servers to be a cop on, fucking up crooks' shit without getting slapped with a ban hammer?
>Reasons why i don't play Gmod, the thread.
Fucking kids wreck everything. I'm just not patient enough to go find servers that are mostly +18 and then hope they aren't the same power hungry, rule bending asshole. Fuck running a server as well.
I used to play in divinityDarkRP
It was pretty cool, was.
Now its filled to the brim with kid mods and literally no fun zone because newbies call everything rule breaking, i used to make mazes and shit on high traffic areas, it was so fun, most older players had a great time but everyone else called it propblock and they spammed the admins to get it removed everytime
My character was called Jason Statham, If anyone here recognizes it.
